Bengaluru: Scores of dead fish washed up on the banks of the popular Ulsoor lake of Bengaluru today.
Residents of Bengaluru, who are struggling hard to clean up the city’s polluted lakes, were left in a state of shock after the incident came to light.
The reason for the sudden death of thousands of fish remains unknown.
Ulsoor lake, a tourism hotspot and a popular boating site, has for many years been choked with water hyacinth and the government has been making efforts to clear it.
A few months ago, toxic froth had taken over Bengaluru’s streets due to extreme levels of pollution in Bellandur Lake. The periodic water sampling of the lake waters had revealed extremely high amounts of phosphorous and other inorganic chemical compounds.
